    Default reversible

    HI

    I wonder if i can use reversible for hoja (de papel) doble faz, meaning that it has text on both sides.
    thanks!

    Hi, Diegonel!

    Thanks for taking part in this forum!

    Reversible is not the best choice for paper. Although the meaning is conveyed, this is not the term we generally use in Spanish.

    Perhaps you could try with:
    - hoja escrita tanto en el anverso como en el reverso
    - hoja escrita de ambos lados
    - ambos lados de la hoja
    - (for printers) impresión dúplex

    For localized expressions, I recommend you visit a blog on translations with a lot of posts about the different language academies for Spanish.

    Here are some examples:

    Academia Ecuatoriana de la Lengua

    Academia Nacional de Letras de Uruguay

    Academia Nicaragüense de la Lengua

    In these institutions there are linguists who answer a special phone line for queries.

    What is more, anyone, not just high-rank authorities, can ask questions and they are answered fast and accurately.

    Please let me know if you need more help!

    Hi reminder,

    as a matter of fact iv'e been part of this formu for a long time. And if i am not mistaken you have helped me before.

    Anyway thanks.

    Regarding the word "reversible" it is the word in english i asked about. A "reversible sheet".
    But i came up with the word "double sized sheet"
    what do you think?
    See you
    and thanks for your previous reply.

    ..."double sized sheet"
    You, of course, mean double-sided sheet. I agree with Tess...can't think of any other way to say it.

    As @reminder, at first I thought you were asking to the equivalent or reversible sheet in Spanish

    BTW, reversible sheets seem to apply to bed sheets only.


    Feliz año!

    Hi, everybody!!

    I thought you needed the translation from English into Spanish! Jejejejejeje. By the way, we are in GENERAL ENGLISH TO SPANISH TRANSLATION.

    Probably we exchanged posts before in this forum, because I am a senior member. I used to write a lot!

    Well, my English is not as good as my Spanish, but here's another option:

    double-face sheet

    Best regards!!
